[Samba] File lock recovery

I am having some issues with lock recovery.
If a client gets powered off after acquiring an exclusive lock on a file, the Windows server grants the file lock to a second client within 2 minutes. However, the Samba server (version Samba 3.0.28-0.el5.8) that I am having does not look to be detecting the dead client and so, a second client is not getting the lock on the same file even if it waits for >30 minutes.
Is it (no resource recovery) an expected behaviour? Is the resource recovery time is something that can be configured? Can the option "reset on zero vc" be useful in such a situation?
Thank you in advance for your help
Thanks and Regards
